Repealing the federal health care reform law was the top issue chosen by approximately 250 people who filled out a survey during the 2012 Plymouth County Fair.
Visitors to the Plymouth County Republican Party booth at the fair last month were asked to identify the three most important issues that concern them when they vote in the November Presidential election, according to Don Kass, Plymouth County Republican Party co-chair.
Results of the informal poll which showed responses to the question were:
* Repealing the federal Affordable Care Act -- 80 percent
* Budget Deficit -- 66 percent
* Taxation -- 41 percent
* Immigration -- 34 percent
* Social issues (abortion/marriage law) -- 29 percent
* National security-- 25 percent
* Regulation -- 23 percent
The totals add up to more than 100 percent because people were allowed to choose three issues.
"People are both informed about the Affordable Health Care Act and are very eager for its repeal," said Kass in the press release.
The budget deficit was the main concern among Democratic Party voters and voters independent of the two political parties who answered the survey,
Seventy-one percent chose the budget deficit and 50 percent chose repealing health care reform and taxation as well, Kass said.
